Into The Weird Episode 19: Revenge Of The Fawn
This week Billy and Herman tackle the most unorthodox and madcap Superhero team of the Marvel Bronze Age - The dynamic DEFENDERS.

Halloween Special 2019: Vampires Galore!
Happy Halloween, fearful ones! For our Halloween Special this year Billy and Herman have deigned to hijack your ears with a gargantuan 4 hour marathon of horror comics. Because of the sheer length of this endeavor, we've had to separate the episode into two chapters. They are as follows: CHAPTER 1: ToD meets LoD - Ryan Daly from 'Midnight... The Podcasting Hour' and the Fire & Water Network of Podcasts joins Herman for a discussion of Marvel's TOMB OF DRACULA #12-14.  CHAPTER 2: Billy and Herman get blood-drunk as they talk Marvel's Vampire Tales #4, featuring Morbius the Living Vampire and Billy's absolute favorite horror story of all time, August Derleth's "The Drifting Snow." An old segment briefly returns, in addition to our Shoptalk and Recommendations of Raggador bits. Hope you enjoy it, Constant Listeners. Into The Weird is on Patreon.
